Web Sites & Lexile

Web sites and search tools appropriate for younger readers may present a challenge. You may find what you need, but the text may be way ahead of your students. In some cases, online encyclopedias, databases, and search engines are including information about reading levels and Lexile ranges.

  • Badgerlink >> Kids Search and Searchasaurus show the Lexile of search returns. Searchasaurus even lets you search by Lexile.
  • KidsClick is a search tool monitored by librarians (meaning better and fewer results). All the results are categorized by a general reading level.
  • Grolier Online Encyclopedia (DMS only) allows you to search by Lexile, if you like.
